The GSX-R750 offers nearly identical handling to that of the 600. Mid-pack handling scores didn’t give it any help on the scorecard.

The Suzuki 750 offers a much broader spread of power allowing the rider to run the bike a gear high in corners with the torque of the engine able to pull it at a lower rpm.

Like its little brother, the GSX-R750 failed to excite in any one category. No doubt it’s a great bike but it lacks the edgy performance that makes a great bike excellent.

The GSX-R750’s compact isn’t as tiny-feeling as the Honda but worked well for all of our testers.

Even with the extra displacement of its engine the GSX-R750 is one of the lighter bikes in this contest with the highest power-to-weight ratio.

The GSX-R750’s broader powerband makes it more entertaining to ride on the street compared to 600cc sportbikes.

As far as value it’s really hard to argue with Suzuki’s GSX-R750. It’s a lot of motorcycle for the money.

The ability to adjust the height of the footpegs is a big plus on the street. It helps make the Suzuki’s cockpit more accommodating for a wider range of rider sizes.

While the Suzuki chassis doesn’t offer quite as much feel mid-corner as the MV Agusta or Triumph it’s still plenty adept at carving through a turn.

The Suzuki’s gearbox feels of good quality but didn’t shift quite as slickly as the Honda, Kawasaki or Yamaha.

The Suzuki has an awful lot of character for a Japanese sportbike. We love its throaty engine roar during acceleration that makes it more fun to ride.

The Suzuki’s extra engine displacement give it more acceleration ‘oomph of corners.
